Wanna Know Where The Tea Party Is? Just Ask Dick Lugar!

Serendipity: A happy chance or accident. Precisely the opposite of what happened to Senator Dick Lugar last Tuesday in Indiana. At the risk of being redundant, I wrote at the time of the 2010 elections that it wasn’t over ’til it’s over, but that the American Tea Party Patriots had put a new face on American politics.

I said that the ‘Republicans-in-name-only’, the ones not voted out in the 2010 sweep of the US House of Representatives, were not the only ones who had to look to their seats in the upcoming 2012 primaries, House and Senate races. I’ve also commented on the not inconsiderable number of House and Senate members who, having seen the hand-writing on the wall, have announced that they would not seek re-election in the upcoming contests. Thus far, it looks like five Democrats, three Republicans and one ‘independent’ have stated they will not seek re-election. There are thirty two members of the House who are dropping out.

Don’t buy the ‘lame-at-best’ excuse that redistricting is responsible. I said that we were going on a RINO hunt after the election. There is ample evidence that this is just what has occurred. Conservative challengers have cropped up all over the nation, despite the overwhelming monetary and organizational advantages of both the DeMarxists and the Republican establishment, whose wrong-headed choices may be, in large part, responsible for the rise of the Tea Party itself.

It’s striking that we have to run against our own side while defeating the true enemy. But rise we have, with Patriot citizen candidates all over the country, from school boards to state capitols and beyond, challenging DeMarxists who, in even heavily leftist entrenched districts, are looking over their shoulders… even the thickest, most out of touch of them, sensing the darkening mood of the nation.

Look what happened in Wisconsin, for instance. The unions were so certain they’d take out Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, in the recall elections initiated by them, that they spent millions of dollars to destroy Walker… and none of it worked. Walker actually looks like he’s gained strength and momentum coming out of the Republican primary. The point is that these are Tea Party candidates who are making their presence felt at all levels of the political spectrum.

We could be witnessing the beginning of the death of liberalism as we know it. We may also be witnessing the beginning of a whole new Republican brand… The Patriot brand.

Happy retirement, Dick.

Isn't it funny that the politicians keep forgetting the election of 2010.  They must be dump as dirt and the republicans better stand up and man up, or all of them will be next too.

I would love to think that the Liberals are ready to give up,, but I know better. They will not go down without a fight,, but their getting ready to have their asses handed to them on a platter. That also includes the corrupt republicans that are trying to ride in on the conservative coat tails but are nothing more than snakes in the grass.

Good article.  But remember with liberalism as with the devil they never die they just slither under a rock for a while as soon as you let down your guard guess who's back!!!

I love it.

Here's hoping Orin Hatch is out as well.

When we went to early vote on Monday we saw one of our candidate friends so stopped to say Hi.  We started talking about this very thing, that the libs are trying to say the Tea Party is dead.  My friend said as he pointed to his campaign sign, "No!  We're out doing this!!!"  That's right.  The Tea Party is our next group of politicians.

This is great! Now, having gotten rid of Lugar across the river, we here in Louisville, need to marshall forces to get rid of John Yarmouth ASAP! Every single time I have written to him to buck Obama (Obamacare in particular) he has written back telling me that he and Obama know what's best for us and that they'll take care of us, whether we want them to or not.

This guy has GOT to go! I've worked hard for the last 2 election cycles to get his butt out of that seat in the House, but we are seriously outnumbered by a small pocket of liberals in Louisville & Lexington. I will continue to fight, but we could use some help here!

Once Yarmouth is out of a job, then we can concentrate on gettng rid of Beshear & Abramson in Frankfort and Fischer here in Louisville.

KY is largely a conservative state, but we are being overrun by a few pockets of liberals that need to be ousted!

I, personally, want to see term limits and for those who serve NOT be "professional" politicians.  That is not what our founders intended nor what is in our best interests!  JMHO
